is what about the science shows it is. but he's doing this interesting thing where he's claiming to say the same thing that obama said about this. what obama was asked about was how do you explain to your daughters that you know, you're a christian. christianity said it took six days for the earth to be created. how do you explain that to your daughters. obama went on a theological question, we don't know how long six days is. i believe in the science obama has said millions of times, we should teach geology and evolution in science class and if you want to teach intelligent design and other theories, do it in religion class. and the important part with rubio is while he does seem to be tempering his first line now with mike allen yesterday after he got a lot of criticism for it he still believes fundamentally that you should teach creationism alongside evolution in classes. that's really where this comes from. his history when he was in florida as a state house speaker was a huge fight over evolution education in

political points because there is no science to back this up. experts have locked at this and this is the longest period since 1900 without a major hurricane hitting the united states whether it is floods or droughts they are showing no trends over sector 80 years and people are trying to draw short trends but the bottom line, congress is not only doing this at fema hearings but the senators like senator whitehouse from rhode island are doing this at defense authorization trying to ride hurricane sandy to the bank and the bank is setting the same for a carbon tax here in washington, dc. that is what they are trying, the treasury, is trying to do and there is fear that even republicans are going to do it as a revenue neutral part of tax reform. that is what this is about, more money from the government using hurricane sandy. >> what i worry about, if anything, be when we had a lot of physical storms back in the 60's, whether they would respond the same way and gotten the same initiatives that cost billions for what was a cycle. we do it again, but, i think before yo
